Veeco Announces the 5th Annual International Nanoscience Conference

WOODBURY, NY | Posted on January 30th, 2007

"Seeing at the Nanoscale continues to be an outstanding international scientific forum for those involved in nanoscience from both academia and industry," said Evelyn Hu, event advisor and department head for the California NanoSystems Institute at UCSB. "Nanostructural imaging, characterization, and modification utilizing scanning probe microscopy are revolutionizing scientific research, and this is the conference to attend to examine the findings and learn more about the future of nanoscience."

The three-day conference themed, "Exploring the Future of Nanotechnology," provides both a platform and a tremendous opportunity for scientists worldwide to discuss their latest discoveries, and to share their research on next-generation nanotechnology with their peers and visionaries in the field of nanoscience. Each year the conference hosts several hundred international researchers and scientists. In conjunction with the conference, Veeco plans to offer extensive add-on training courses and workshops for its customers. Conference sessions for 2007 include:
